I subscribe to Studio Calico. With shipping, it's about $35 bucks a month. To get my money's worth, I figure I need to complete about 6-7 layouts with each kit. And since I'm a finisher, I need to finish my kits as I go. Since Joyland will ship next week, I needed to get off my butt and finish up last month's kit, Quilting Bee.
I had trouble with last month's kit. It was full of sewing images, flowers, girls...which does not scream "my boys," who are the subjects of most of my layouts. So, with determination, here's the six I created:
I went for spirit on most of the color and pattern mixes. The last one I used a Sketchy Thursdays sketch on. Most of these layouts used mostly kit, with very few additions from my stash.
So, even though some kits don't fit my style or my subjects, I enjoy the creative push they give me.
